I figured since my brother owes me $300
ex wife owes me $490
Wal-Mart bonus $100-200
and I am hoping for $500 from tax returns

....that I will do something nice for my ride :cool:

It's lowered, wheels, exhaust, about to get a new upper grill and AEM c/a/i

..and I am now thinking HID conversion.

But, not sure if I should go with projectors or the stock housing?!?!

The $hitty thing is I have to make up my mind with what housings I am going with b4 buying the HID :(

I've heard a few horror stories about projectors beam patterns. But, then I don't know how I will feel having no high beam. This conversion is NOT legal correct?

What to do, what to do???

I saw you post that you're eventually gonna swap for an H22, save up towards that, or turbo. Ish, you've almost got 1500, keep saving up for one of those big mods.
Well, the enging now only has 44k on it. I really want to wait until I get out of school for the swap. By then the motor should be close to 100k.

...and I don't want to blow all that $$ on a mod. Don't get me worng, I would love to have the H22 :)
Just not a good time!

Thanks for the suggestion though.

if i am you save the money for later!

I have kinda stop moding my car! In case of something come up later! And by the amount that you say you going to get is not alot so. $1390-1490 that is not alot of HID kit (the good kind). So if i am you save up for something good on peform then show since you only have 106 Under the hood. with the mod you have max i think is 120-130 so SAVE UP! Maybe if we have another bad luck. Maybe another something like 911!

I must of missed something... I thought the HID kits most buy are like $400-500 :confused: I know they can get pricey, but $1,500 :eek:

don't waste your money on it. just save until you have enough for a swap. and if you save enough, you could even swap in a b18b or b18c and turbo that bitch.

Nah, H22!
I want 300+ hp
Anyhow, I am fasinated with HID for some reason when it's on a Honda. I know it's f**kin' crazy since it's just lights. But, it looks so bad ass and makes me want to charge the kit when I see them in person :)

To me it doesn't make sense to get HID's. I love em, don't get me wrong, but for all they cost, how much will YOU get to enjoy them? At least with other exterior mods you can see them when your're walking towards your car. Those need to be ON to enjoy them, and you'll be inside! I'd save, or buy something small for now to tide you over.

suggestion

Save a bit more and get a greddy turbo kit. i think i saw one for 1650. Pretty good price for being able to say "i have a turbocharged civic that runs 13's/14's all day on street tires." Maybe even smoking v-8's!

you can get 300+ hp out of a b18c with a turbo. plus you don't sacrifice any drivability with that engine
